Alvaro Morata

ESPN pundit Alejandro Moreno has revealed that he believes Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata is better than Manchester United hitman Romelu Lukaku, report the Daily Star.

The comparisons between the two was inevitable. Both are playing for two of the Premier League’s top clubs and both made big-money moves in the summer transfer window.

Morata and Lukaku are tied at the top of the Premier League goal-scoring charts with six each, although the latter has played more this term and has had several years to adapt to life in England’s top tier. Morata has not.

It could be for that reason that Alejandro Moreno, who does punditry for ESPN, has come to the conclusion that Chelsea’s record-signing is the superior player. The Daily Star quote Moreno, who when asked which striker he prefers, said:

“Morata, I said all along that I feel Morata has a lot more to his game than Lukaku does.”

Both are two of the best strikers in the division, who have potential to go to the very top of the game. Perhaps we should appreciate their talent opposed to making unnecessary comparisons.

Morata is clearly better, though…

I think morata’s all round play as a striker is better than lukaku’s, both are good strikers anyway, but I prefer morata, bcos he can join in build up play and also has that predatory instinct plus clinical finishing, while lukaku might just be better in hold up play.
